  • Acacia senegal gum

    Acacia senegal gum is the dried exudate—a complex, loose aggregate of sugars [arabinose, galactose, rhamnose] and hemicelluloses—of Acacia senegal. Also known as gum arabic, it is commonly included in cosmetics as a fragrance ingredient or as a suspending and emulsifying agent 1, 2. Acacia gum is generally considered to be a nontoxic material when used topically 2.

    This ingredient can also be found in the following products:

  • Aloe barbadensis leaf juice extract (Manapol)

    Aloe barbadensis leaf juice extract (Manapol)® is a polysaccharide found in aloe vera gel. For centuries, the plant aloe vera has been used by cultures for its beneficial effects on human health 1. Today aloe vera gel continues to be used in supplements, foods, beverages, and cosmetics. Aloe leaves consist of two major parts, the outer leaf epidermis and the inner leaf gel, which are very different in their chemical composition and properties. Aloe gel, obtained from the inner portion of the leaves, is rich in nutrients and contains an abundant supply of glycoproteins and mono-, oligo- and polysaccharides. Monosaccharide constituents include glucose, mannose, galacturonic acid, glucuronic acid, galactose, arabinose, fucose, glucosamine, fructose, rhamnose and xylose

    Much of the health benefits observed by the use of aloe vera gel may be attributed to its high molecular weight (MW) polysaccharides. Before a process was developed to stabilize aloe vera gel or extracts, fresh preparations were regarded as being required for any therapeutic efficacy 3. It is now clear that careful drying of aloe vera gel can retain the polysaccharide content important for producing many of its health benefits 4. An ingredient exclusive to Mannatech, Manapol is obtained from fresh, washed and filtered gel by a specialized extraction method that yields insoluble fibers and stabilized, high MW soluble fibers rich in long-chain mannose sugars—beta-(1-4)-acetylated polymannans (acemannan)

    An ingredient exclusive to Mannatech, Manapol is obtained from fresh, washed and filtered gel by a specialized extraction method that yields insoluble fibers and stabilized, high MW soluble fibers rich in long-chain mannose sugars—beta-(1-4)-acetylated polymannans (acemannan)5. Mannose is an important glyconutrient sugar that supports cell-to-cell communication6.

    Aloe vera gel has a long history of use as a topical agent to soothe and hydrate the skin and enhance healing. Many attribute the benefits of topical and oral aloe vera gel to its acemannan content. 7. The acetylation (i.e., attachment of CHO groups) of acemannan appears to be crucial for solubility and its ability to induce fibroblast proliferation and stimulate fibroblasts to produce the dermal extracellular matrix protein collagen 7,8. Acemannan has also been shown to stimulate the production of growth factors involved in healing 9. The mechanism by which acemannan exerts these effects was recently shown to be via the AKT/mTOR signaling pathway 10. The MW of over 20% of Manapol is >800,000. Preliminary evidence suggests that superior immunologic benefits may be provided by higher MW aloe gel extracts that have a higher mannose content5,11. Aloe vera gel is also used in cosmetics and personal care products as a skin conditioning agent, which acts both to lubricate the skin surface and to increase water content of the top layers of the skin by drawing moisture from the surrounding air 12. According to the Cosmetic Ingredients Review (an independent committee established by the Personal Care Products Council, an industry trade association that thoroughly reviews and assesses the safety of ingredients used in cosmetics), Aloe barbadensis leaf extract is safe to use in the amounts present in our products 13.

  • Crocus chrysanthus bulb extract

    Crocus chrysanthus bulb extract is an extract derived from the bulb of the crocus flower. Collagen, the main extracellular structural protein in the skin dermis, diminishes with age1. Elastin fibers in the dermis, key to supporting the elasticity of the skin, also diminish with aging2. Both of these structural components of the skin are produced by the most common cell in connective tissue: fibroblasts. Keratinocytes, cells on the surface of the skin, communicate with fibroblasts deep in the dermis, stimulating their ability to synthesis collagen and elastin3. A human clinical study indicated that Crocus chrysanthus bulb extract improved skin firmness; another study showed that it increased the collagen and elastin fiber content of the skin. The mechanism of these effects was explored in test tube studies, which showed that human skin fibroblasts exhibited increased expression of genes associated with markers of collagen/elastin assembly following exposure to culture medium from human skin keratinocytes exposed to Crocus chrysanthus bulb extract.

  • Cynara scolymus (artichoke) leaf extract

    Cynara scolymus (artichoke) leaf extract is used in cosmetics as a skin-conditioning agent 1. In small company-sponsored clinical studies, application of preparations containing C. scolymus leaf extract reduced skin melanin content and improved skin texture and elasticity. In test tube studies, the mechanisms of these effects were explored. Preparations containing C. scolymus leaf extract inhibited basic fibroblast growth factor (bfGF) by human epidermal keratinocytes, inhibited epidermal melanocyte proliferation and inhibited skin cell melanin production.

    Glycerin is a chemical compound used in skin care products and cosmetics as a humectant, that is, a skin conditioning agent that increases water content of the top layers of the skin by drawing moisture from the surrounding air. Glycerin also acts as a lubricant on the skin surface, which gives the skin a soft and smooth appearance 1.

    In oral solutions, glycerin is used as a solvent, sweetening agent, antimicrobial preservative, and viscosity-increasing agent. It can also be used in film coatings for tablets.1.
